MORryde Steps installed.

hope you guys don't beat me up too much, this will be my first how to post. In february of this year the wife and i attended the dallas RV show, we ran across a nice toy hauler with the MORryde stairs installed and after climbing in and out of fifth wheels all day the wife loved these stairs. So now we have added the MORryde stairs to the camper. i took a few pictures and will do my best to explain my experience with the install.

I will say the installation is pretty simple if you follow the directions. the directions were very good and there isnt too much to do except line it up correctly and mark the locations for the five screws. the stairs come fully assembled with directions and a packet of screws.

the most important thing i discovered is to make sure the stairs are as flush as possible to the outside of the trailer otherwise you will have problems shutting the door with the stairs down. next make sure they are centered, the latching mechanisms are adjustable but you will want them to be as even as possible. next i used duct tape along the front edge to attempt to hold it in place while i lifted the stairs into a locked position so that i could predrill for the screws. only drill the outer two until the fit is checked. i had to adjust twice before i got it correct. throughout the process i recommend checking the fit in the up and down position before drilling the remaining screw holes.
and thats it. once installed the puppies went in and out several times with no issues. the standard stairs caused them lots of stress. the new stairs are 4 step where the old were 3 and that too makes a large difference.

You left the old steps in place. Why not take them out?

thinking about taking the old ones out. it would be great if there was a storage box that would mount in place of the old stairs. went camping this weekend and had multiple people stop to check them out and a few ask to try them out. they may not be for everyone but the stability for me and the ease for the dogs made them worth the money for me.

The only down side I see to leaving them on is a little weight...If the camper is ever sold, Jalapeno only has to remove the MORryde stairs for the new camper...

You are correct sir and they will be going with me to the next camper. lol can't live without them now. Made a big difference in getting in and out. Now I just need to figure out how to put some led strips on them.
